Josep Font, Barcelona
Tel: 34 93 487 2110
Concierge.com's insider take:
Catalonia-born Josep Font is probably the closest thing Barcelona has to a haute couture designer (he also has a shop in Paris). He produces exquisitely crafted, highly feminine women's clothing in the finest fabrics, and each collection references a fashionable era in history—for example, the yacht parties of the Côte d'Azur circa 1975. Font's jewel of a shop in the Eixample has a patchwork floor of original Art Nouveau tiles, and large Murano glass chandeliers light up the fuchsia and purple walls. For those in the market, there is a gorgeous selection of bridal gowns rendered in antique lace, each bearing Font's trademark detailing: a pert, brightly colored sash here, a shoulder bow there.
Open Mondays through Saturdays 10 am to 8:30 pm.
